Technical abilities 🏌️‍♂️ are not enough to be a great player. Adding to that Physical and Tactical excellence and it’s still not enough to be stellar! So what does it take to achieve expertise and become a player that stands out from the rest of the competition? Hint: an ability to see into the future...

 How is it, exactly?? Wishy washy stuff? No, you will keep focused, super attuned in the present moment... And with practice, the rest will come. Magic happens.

 On this IQ, grabbing from the practical wisdom from one of the best Ice Hockey players of all time (Wayne Gretzky LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINK) we point you to the Power of Anticipation. The power to succeed over opponents reactions. To play faster, effectively, and more efficiently.

 See, a critical element to Efficiently Work your Sports Practice!
